Fingering Charts

Saxophone Beginners Starter pack
Sale now on!

First we have a couple of very basic fingering charts which show you the saxophone fingerings for the lower and upper register in the key of C. These are ideal for absolute beginners who don’t want to be overwhelmed by the entire chart of all fingerings.

After that we have charts for the other notes. On this page I have only included the most common fingerings and a couple of alternative fingerings for the standard range.

The fingerings here are good for beginners to learn, but there are some more alternative fingerings. On this page we only show the standard range of the saxophone (up to F on older instruments and up to F# on many newer on) but we also have a chart of fingerings for the extended (altissimo range)
